The campuses of San Francisco State University on the San Francisco peninsula and north bay are located within the occupied territories of the Ohlone peoples and the Coastal Miwok (who, along with the Southern Pomo, are organized as the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria).
In Fall 2019, AIS has begun an initiative with community leaders throughout the area to ensure SFSU not only acknowledges the multiple lawyers of Indigenous San Francisco and Marin counties but does so in a way that is meaningful and responsible to Indigenous people’s cultural teachings and concerns.
The first workshop is October 9 with members representing the diversity of Ohlone people.
